I went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix tonight. Awesome. Completely worth the morification of seeing a movie alone.
The actors are old enough to do a character driven plot instead of just action, which I appreciated. So was there teenage angst? Well, yes. But I thought it was toned down and pretty reasonable / well explained / explored. My full points to the director for making it the way he did, we already knew it would be different from the book.
But the knitwear…. Umbridge’s fluffy pink caridgans? Perfect. Luna’s self (?) crocheted shrug? Perfect. Weasley sweaters? In full glory. Ginny’s eclectic hippy knits? Love ’em.
And Neville had one stunning Fair Isle with wide contrast raglan lines that I immediately wanted to knit. There’s no way I ever could/would…. but damn…. That’s one nice sweater. Neville wears it when he discovers the Room of Requirement, if you want to go look for it. Drool.
